Coding based adventure teaches and puzzles players.
In Algo Bot, players control the movements of a lovable but down-on-its-luck robot, using basic programming skills to solve puzzles. Set aboard the pan-galactic colonization ship Europa, over 46 levels, players must devise algorithms to carefully control Algo Bot’s path, borrowing concepts from the programming world – including variables and subroutines.
In the rich single-player story campaign, Algo Bot meets PAL, a cantankerous and aloof line manager, and Gemini, the cheerfully eccentric shipboard computer. When a routine recycling job goes horribly wrong, Algo and this unlikely band of heroes must work together to save the sleeping colonists on board the Europa.
Algo Bot is a unique futuristic adventure puzzle game, delivering a one-of-a-kind programming gameplay experience, teaching basic programming concepts in a fun and entertaining way. There are over 40 programming puzzles in the game set in five unique environments. They’re designed to be easy to understand for beginners while still being difficult enough for puzzle enthusiasts.
There are several programming aspects covered through the game that you can learn, such as:
- Sequential command lines with limited syntax
- Planning a program (mentally run code and debug it)
- Variables management
- Recursive Functions
- Optimization strategies
Algo Bot is available now on Steam for £7.19 / $9.99.
